The Brush Cleaner Tin has a compact size that makes it easy and convenient for stowage in a makeup kit or travel bag. Now you can take small amounts of brush cleaner along to your job for fast cleaning of your makeup brushes. The container holds up to 2 oz of Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner, or other liquid solvent type brush cleaner brand, and allows you to cleanse makeup tools and brushes with smaller amounts of cleaner at a time. The best way to maximize the use of a tin of cleaner is to dip brush into container and quickly remove it (don’t soak or swirl the brush while in the container). Begin to wipe the brush clean on a tissue, paper towel, or terry cloth type of towel. Repeat the process again until brush wipes clean. Allow to air dry for 3-5 minutes before using brush. This method keeps your brush cleaner in the tin fresher and longer lasting than using the tin to clean the brush directly in it. For faster drying, lay brushes flat on non-porous surface, hold in place by handles, and fan hair dryer from six inches away for a maximum of 30 seconds. For larger blush and powder brushes, dip only 15% of the brush tip, then invert to allow liquid to flow to the bristle roots at the ferrule. Wipe clean and allow to dry.
